    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend taking this course with professor Wessling; she is one of the most organized and punctual instructors I've ever came across; you will actually learn the subjects with her versus just memorizing equations.

    Course highlights:

    You will start this course by learning about themodynamics, then charges, then move into electricity; you will cover electric forces, electric fields, electric potential energy, electric potential, capacitors, resistors, DC current, etc. You will also touch up on AC current but not very much in depth. Next topics include magnetism, torque in electromagnetism, etc.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You will have to do A LOT of homework for this class so get ready to spend lots of time at home on this course! The exams aren't too difficult as long as you stay consistent with doing the homework assigned. Most of the exam problems are real life examples which makes the test very interesting; you will need to come up with a lot of estimations so you might want to practice that (estimate the weight of your dirty laundry, width of a door, etc).

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you are planning on taking any physics course I would advise you to take this class as it really helps you understand truly what physics is about.

    Course highlights:

    You will learn everything you need to know about thermodynamics and about electric magnetic fields. Whats most interesting is working with circuits hands on and relating it to our lives today and what kind of circuits we use in our homes today.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise anyone to really make time in your schedule to have enough time to study for this course as it requires both conceptual and quantitative skills.
